remain anxiously waiting for him to come to the table to work with us to solve this problem. >> bottom line, you could lose the sequester if it happens? >> i don't want to live with the sequester. i want reductions in spending that make sense. these indiscriminate reductions do not make sense, and we're going to hurt a lot of people. and it's up to the president really to act now. >> let me talk about immigration. you gave a big speech this week where you talked about the future of the republican party. and to a lot of people listening, they heard a shift in position from you about how to deal with those illegal immigrants who are now in the country. maybe they were the children of illegal immigrants. this is what you said on tuesday. >> one of the great founding principles of our country was that children would not be punished for the mistakes of their parents. and it is time to provide an opportunity for legal residents and citizenship for those who were brought to this country as children and who know no other home. >> the question is, are you changing your position? are you moving
for joining us. >>> from nbc news in washington, the world's longest-running television program, this is "meet the press" meet. >>> good sunday morning. we are following the big weather story in the northeast as this weekend's huge winter storm blanketed the region from new york to maine. new york city is getting the worst of it all. more than three feet of snow fell in parts of connecticut, rhode island, and massachusetts. cutting power and downing trees. electrical power remains out in nearly 350,000 homes whereas the area this morning. so a lot of cleanup to do there. >>> meanwhile, the political climate has our attention here in washington as the president prepares to deliver his state of the union address tuesday night. as we begins a second term, we're being told he will return to his primary message of how to restore economic growth. we'll talk to both sides this morning. majority leader eric cantor and assistant democratic leader in the senate dick durbin. i want to welcome you back to "meet the press." >> pleasure, david. thank you. >> there are so many areas that are contentious righ
other states. not only is virginia home to the pentagon, the world's largest u.s. navy base, but a hub for major defense contractors such as aircraft builders. so the impact over 200,000 jobs, second only to california. you can't want this automatic spending cut to go forward. >> you know, clearly this is not, david, the best way to go about trying to chroontrol spending. and we have demonstrated in the house two separate occasions -- one of the bills we put across the floor and passed i was the sponsor of for that reason. these are indiscriminate cuts. we can do a lot better. what i hope to be able to hear from the president in the state of the union is he wants to join us in trying to effect much smarter cuts in spending. >> but that's what he's saying. >> we don't have to have the impact that you just described. >> why not work with him on short-term measure which he is talking about to delay this, find a different way to go about some of the cuts? >> the problem is, david, every time you turn around the answer is to raise taxes. and, you know, he just got his tax hike on the wealth
wants to join us in trying to effect much smarter cuts in spending so we don't have to have -- >> but that's what he's saying. >> so we don't have to have the impact that you discussed. >> why not work with him on some short-term measure that he's talking about to delay this, try to find a different way to go about these cuts? >> the problem is, david, every time you turn around, the answer is to raise taxes. and he just got his tax hike on the wealthy, and you can't in this town every three months raise taxes. and again, every time, that's his response. and you know, we've got a spending problem. everybody knows it. the house has put forward an alternative plan, and there's been no response in any serious way from the senate or the white house, and it's time we've really got to deal with that. >> listen how the president responded. in a saturday address, he took on what the house plan is and tried to put the pressure on republicans over the automatic spending cut. here's what he said. >> right now, most members of congress, including many republica republicans, don't think
used another term, and i'm sorry. i would like to go back and change the words and the meaning. the bigger point is, what i was saying, i think -- what i meant to say, should have said, is recognizable. it's been recognized, is recognized. well, i said it. and i don't remember the context or when i said it. well, i said what i said. i said many, many things over many years. that's what i should have said. and thank you. >> secretary panetta, many of those answers did not satisfy a lot of republicans. senator roy blunt is going to vote no. he said his answers were too inconsistent particularly related to iran and israel. marco rubio said i've been deeply concerned about his plef previous comments. john barrasso, he appeared weak and wobbly. are you concerned? >> well, everyone you quoted is a republican, and it's pretty obvious that the political knives were out for chuck hagel. >> and you think that was totally personal, partisan? >> well, what disappointed me is they talked a lot about past quotes. but what about what a secretary of defense is confronting today. what about the
respond quickly. but i have to tell you, a lot of that still is dependent on whether intelligence tells us that we've got a big problem, and gives us enough warning so that we can get to the place to respond. >> did you have enough time to get there in time? >> no. >> you didn't have enough warning in benghazi? >> no, we did not. >> anything that could have been done better on the intelligence front, or is this what happens in a place like libya that right now is an unstable state? >> well, we've learned a lot from the benghazi incident. as the secretary said, we work -- the state department kind of surveying those parts of the world where there's a new norm, if you will, of instability. in terms of, you know, discussing the intelligence apparatus, it's pretty easy to talk about the intelligence failures. we don't talk much about them many times, and we have intelligence and we're able to stop or prevent or disrupt an attack. so of course we should continue to learn from these events. >> is turkey a success? the stopping of, you know, it was stopped at the perimeters. should we see that as
a wonderful afternoon with you and- >>yes we did. >i'm so glad that you've come back to be with us and you've brought a doctor with you. and now i'm going to do something we don't really do it right off the bat but i want to do this because we have only three hundred of these bottle here and the deal is tonight... >were going to give you a bottle free, with every bottle you buy. so um that way you'll, you'll be able to really try it. so one free with every bottle you buy. and so um, i just want to get people started right off the bat because if you have pain and you want to buy this go to your phone and you get an extra one free. now, ken tell me about how did you... did you develop this? >>no um i have been i've been in the uh health care business for twenty-five to thirty years. i was involved in sports medicine, i've been involved in the building health clubs, i've been involved in the arthritis business, and i learned of this oil um in 2002. i heard that there was a company in australia trying to bring the most powerful, natural, anti-inflammatory, and that's what omega xl is. a powerf
with us secretary of transportation ray lahood who sound add pretty loud alarm bell on friday. mr. secretary, good morning. good to have you here. >> good morning. >> you talked friday about a calamity in our air service system in america, a billion dollars in cuts that have to be made at the department of transportation, $600 million from the faa, 47,000 faa employees will need to be furloughed at least one day per pay period. is it still going to be safe for the american public to fly if this sequester goes forward. >> one thing we never compromise on is safety. we will never take a back seat to safety. safety will not be compromised. but we will have twork with the airlines in slowing planes down. but there will be enough controllers to make sure planes are guided in and out of airports safely. >> this is about aggravation, not about safety. >> look, this is a huge cut. it's a billion dollars. $600 million at faa, which has the largest number of employees at d.o.t. it's about shared sacrifice. this doesn't have to happened, david. if republicans and democrats get together this
. it was done before. it was done at the 11th hour to save us from going into the fiscal cliff. it can be done again and it can be done by friday. >> so by march 1st, does the traveling public experience, what, immediate disruptions in the flying skies? >> we will begin to look at every contract at faa. we will look at our opportunities to do what we have to do to come up with a billion dollars, and $600 million at faa. these things will begin to be phased in. >> the other point to pin you down on, frankly, is security. not just lines at the airport but safety when it comes to protecting the traveling public. can you give us your assurances about that. >> tfa and security lines are under janet napolitano at the department of homeland security. i will say this. we will never compromise on safety. people are going to be safe flying. >> here is the reality. this is 2% of your budget. a billion dollars is a lot of money to anybody, right. but relative to the federal budget, it's relatively small. why, instead of worrying about dire consequences aren't you and your managers coming up with the best
and there is a new man occupying that seat of power and he is here with us this morning on "meet the press," his first appearance. but who he? how did he get here? denis mcdonough is one of 11 kids and qualification enough in a small town in minnesota. he was a high school football star. he cut his teeth in politics and working in the house for congressman lee hamilton and in the senate for majority leader tom daschle and later for barack obama. when he decided to make a run for the white house in 2008 he tapped mcdonough to be his foreign policy adviser to the campaign. the president announced him as his pick, mcdonough involved in every major foreign policy decision, including the call to get osama bin laden. >> i actually begun to think that denis likes pulling all-nighters. the truth is nobody outworks denis mcdonough. >> here he is. mr. mcdonough, welcome to "meet the press." >> thanks so much for having me, david. >> this is a tough job. you're the fourth one to have it. what is the key, part of your goal for this job as the president has a narrow window? how do you approach it? >> my appr
. what you can use that for, i don't know. he had some ability. he didn't get away, though. >> it's impressive to see what officers face every day working to keep their communities safe. some stories would be hard to believe if they weren't captured by dashboard cameras. i'm contessa brewer. that's all for this edition of "caught on camera." >>> from nbc news in washington, the world's longest running television program, this is "meet the press" with david gregory. >>> good sunday morning. the white house and congressional republicans now at odd on two fronts, the battle over the nomination of chuck hagel for defense secretary. it has now been delayed for another week, that vote. $8.5 billion of automatic spending cuts scheduled to take effect in two weeks' time if no agreement is reached. we have it all covered this morning and we want to start with a view from the white house. in washington, the job of white house chief of staff is known as the most powerful post in town and there is a new man occupying that seat of power and he is here with us this morning on "meet the press,"
,000 of the 47,000 people at faa. the point is that the sequester doesn't allow us to move money around. that's the difference here. if we could shift money around, certainly we would do that. these are very tough decisions. but they have to be made. but it can all be brought to a halt when the congress comes back this week and republicans and democrats do what they have been able to do in the past, talk to one another, work with one another, compromise with the president who has put a plan on the table. >> republicans, your former colleagues, former republican member of congress are saying, wait a minute, mr. secretary, this is a bit overblown. this is a transportation committee putting out a statement that reads in part, the following, "we're disappointed by the administration creating alarm about sequestration's impact on aviation, prematurely outlining potential impacts before identifying other savings is not helpful. today's exaggerations are not backed up by any real financial data. the agencies is well positioned to absorb spending reductions without compromising the safety or efficien
that seat of power and he is here with us this morning on "meet the press." his first appearance. who is he? how did he get here? denis mcdonough grew up one of 11 kids in a small town. he worked in the house for congressman lee hamilton and in the senate for majority leader tom daschle and later for barack obama. when the freshman senator decided to make a run for the white house in 2008 he tapped mcdonough to be his foreign policy adviser for the campaign and once president, obama appointed him. the president noted when he announced him as his pick, mcdonough has been involved in every major foreign policy decision including the call to get osama bin laden. >> i thought denis decided to like pull all-nighters. the truth is nobody outworks denis mcdonough. >> here he is. mr. mcdonough, welcome to "meet the press." >> thanks for having me. >> what is your key part of your goal for this job? how do you approach it? >> my approach is focus on something that jim baker told me the other day. reach out to several of the other chiefs of staff. he said as long as you're focused and not on chief, y
. the president is not done with ben ghazi because here is why. he is demanded of us since that night to find out exactly what happened and then to make every reform needed to ensure it does not happen again. the president of the united states sends these diplomats, our military overseas to these tough spots and not send them and have them be exposed and he's made darn certain that we are doing everything we can to enassure this doesn't happen again. >> let's talk about the spending fight. the reality is the debt is a huge issue that the president faces. this is the fact about it. when he came into office, the debt was 10.6 trillion and now the debt today is 16.5 trillion. we need to separate the debt from when we talk about the deficit. automatic spending cuts happen in a couple of weeks. it was very interesting. speaker boehner said to a group of us before the president's state of the union address, the president simply doesn't have the guts to take on spending, doesn't have the courage to take on liberals in his own party. it's gotten that bad. >> you know, you talk about what the president fo
